My System Specs

Default 980X @ 4.25 Ghz

Finally found a stable 4.25 Ghz....on Air..kinda tough....but Max Temps 81C ...no crashes...25X LinX ....seems fine!!!!

Pretty happy really....Hexa Core at 4.25 Ghz.....friggin thing smokes ;)



now my Tri Sli 580's got something feeding them the "business" ;)


EDIT: Adjusted QPI Freq slightly.....4.3 Ghz is fine....about the same Max Temps running LinX....81C Max on one Core......I'll keep it here....anymore requires a tad more Voltage and Temps do sneak up....pretty friggin good for Air must say ;)

Certainly this Chip needs the "poop" though....about 1.42v to keep it stable ....I never get the "Dream Chips".....

This is why we keep telling you to at least watercool your damn cpu. You'd be able to push it harder at cooler temps, not to mention the backplate bracket wouldnt be overly expensive for whenever you decide to make the jump the LGA2011

Settled on 4.3 Ghz...Max Temp running LinX was 81C on one of the 6 Cores, the rest were low 70's.

Was half snaked drinking Rum last night....too funny ;)

Not to concerned with the Temps as I don't play LinX.......spent a few hrs playing Crysis Warhead and Metro33.....highest Temps I got were 65C.....no biggie!!!

Anyhow, sitting here at the Victoria airport with my wife.....be in LA in a few hrs and on the beach tomorrow afternoon :) I'll Post up some pics later this week guys...

A stable folding rig needs little to no maintenance and if you can afford the expensive toys you should be able to afford the hydro
